Will AI Become the New Standard in Medical Care?

Digital Health

​The expertise of medical professionals is irreplaceable, but what if an average person had a way to discern health information and get a reliable, accurate diagnosis from home? That’s the intention behind Daniel Nathrath and Claire Novorol’s new venture, Ada Health.

The Ada Health app asks the user simple questions and compares the answers with thousands of similar cases to determine the most likely causes of the symptoms. It works with leading health care systems and non-profit organizations around the world to keep the medical library up-to-date. Since its launch in 2016, the app has performed 20 million symptom analyses.
